I had a bunch of old photos to take to Mom for her to look at. We got them kinda sorted out.
If you were married 25 years "The Aunts" used to send out instructions for a cotton quilt square with embroidery on it that included your name. Then they would get together and sew the top together and have a quilting bee.
This was my parents quilt, Mom said they got it when they were married about 35 years...because they had lots of catching up to do when they started the project.
The "Quilting Bee" was held at my cousin Art and Kathy's home on the lake.
Mom still has her quilt, I packed it at her apartment and it went to storage.
You can see the squares were all different pastel colors of cotton material....each design unique.
Far Guy and I have two quilts...two double size quilts because by the time our anniversary rolled around I had many cousins participating!
It was a great family tradition. Many thanks to the Aunts that started the tradition!
